Aussie fans of Fifth Harmony will need to wait another six months (or more) to get their live fix. 

The U.S. girl group was scheduled to start a four-city tour next week but the shows have been either canceled or pushed back until next March due to a “change in scheduling,” according to a statement issued Friday by Ticketmaster

The message reads, “TEG Live, the promoter of Fifth Harmony, has regretfully advised, due to a change in scheduling, it has become necessary to postpone the tour until March 2018.”

The pop outfit's PSA Tour of Australia was meant to visit the market’s four biggest cities, starting Tuesday (Oct. 24) in Perth before winding its way east for shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. The Perth Arena date is now canceled, with “unavoidable scheduling conflicts” to blame, while the remaining dates have been rescheduled (March 8 at Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena, March 9 at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion, and March 10 at Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre).

Fifth Harmony’s self-titled third album, their first as a quartet, opened at No. 9 on the ARIA Albums Chart last month. It was their second to crack the national top ten following 7/27, which reached No. 8 in June 2016.
